YESHIVA UNIVERSITY

HIGH SCHOOL FOR GIRLS 




2301 Snyder Avenue, Brooklyn, N. Y. 




June 1956 


. 





f^relucle 



Four years 

Flowing with the rhythm that is life 

Four years like four movements of a symphony 

With passages of tedium and thrills of beauty 

Composed of hard work and inspiration 

The tunes of voices individually lost in the air 

Blended by friendship into a symphony heard by every ear 

Our knowledge and growth through four years 

Partly from learning 

And mostly from living 

Have been our instruments 



THE SCHOOL 




7 ■.-*»*"' 







THE STUDENT . . . 



The school . . . our orchestra 

The unforgettable key of a Jewish melody is heard 

And becomes imbedded in every heart 

A crescendo of laughter escapes our walls 

And is suddenly stilled by the impact of tragedy 

But even this dies softly 

With the gentleness of wisdom. 

Like Shubert's 

Our symphony is unfinished 

The truest melody has yet to be heard 

Our soaring song is one of promise 

But the clearest notes 

Come only with time.

As you terminate your High School education at Central Yeshiva, we extend 
to you sincerest congratulations on your past achievements and wish you every 
success in your future endeavors. We have abiding faith thai, in the years to come, 
as you expand your acquisition and understanding of human knowledge, so also 
will you grow in knowledge and understanding of the spiritual and ethical values, 
and that you will govern your lives by the standards of the Torah. 

Rabbi Charles Friedman 
Principal 



farewell 



Rozzie 

A patient voice in the midst of chaos 

A sunny smile on a rainy day 

The essence of Central personified 

We leave Central with an extra touch of sadness 

Knowing that Rozzie leaves with us 

But the brightness that she brought to us 

And to those before us 

Will not be forgotten. 



"And on that cheek and o'er that brow 
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent, 

The smiles that win, the tints that glow, 

But tell of days in goodness spent, . . 

A mind at peace with all below, 

A heart whose love is innocent." 

Lord Byron

We, the students of Central Yeshiva High School take great pleasure in paying 
this well deserved tribute to our distinguished Supervisor, Dr. Shelley R. Saphire. 
His untiring devotion has marked him as an outstanding figure in the Academic 
world. Through his years of intimate association with Central Yeshiva High School 
our school has grown to be known as a center of Jewish learning for young women. 
We are proud of his accomplishments and offer our fervent prayer for his good 
health so that he may continue his fine work.

"But thy eternal summer shall not fade 

Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest; 

Nor shall Death brag thou wanderest in his shade. 

When in eternal lines to time thou growest: 

So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see. 

So long lives this, and this 2ives life to thee."

THE SENIOR COUNCIL 
Just as the General Organization is responsible for the activities 
of the student body as a whole so the Senior Council is responsible 
for the activity of the Seniors. 

Members are elected from each class and serve for a period 
of one term. There are also Freshmen, Sophomore and Junior coun- 
cils but they are much less active. 

One of the important duties of the council is to take care of the 
numerous details involved in Graduation. Any problems the Senior 
classes may have are brought to the council and discussed there. 
Arrangements for Senior Day and the "Sing" are also discussed and 
arranged by the council. 

Members of the Council for the Spring term were: Miriam 
Berkowitz, Regina Rimalt, Goldie Nagel, Esther Keehn, Barbara 
Chamedes, Helen Monderer and Nellie Gottesman.

Council Meeting 





'A point of order 



THE GENERAL ORGANIZATION 

This is it. This is the "thing" on which depends the success of the school year. 
The school could be the most beautiful in the world, the girls the most industrious 
and the most intelligent, the faculty the finest but unless that all-important element 
of "school spirit" is there everything is for naught, for this is what "makes" the 
school. Most of the extra-curricular activities and most of the assemblies are G.O. 
sponsored. The G.O. is responsible for the annual "Chanuka Chagiga," the Purim 
Carnival, the Charity Drive, all the clubs, and all the money the student body collects 
for various purposes. It furnishes the needs for the Basketball and Debating teams. 
The always-successful theatre party is also a G.O. affair, this year it was, "The Diary 
of Anne Frank." 

The G.O. "annually" tries to effect a closer relationship between the student 
body and the administration and faculty. Sometimes the achievements in this area 
are not always visible but this year due to the fact that several teachers were leaving 
and one got married, the relationship was at its "healthiest." Several assemblies 
were held in the honor of those esteemed members of our faculty and small tokens 
of our appreciation were presented to them there. Money for these gifts was taken 
out of G.O. funds. But more important than the gifts that were gotten for them 
was the feeling that the students had for them and vice versa. It was all clearly 
obvious and it was a joy to see. 

Roberta Orenstein, President, along with Elaine Gottlieb, Harriet Wagh, and 
Marcia Plotzker, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer respectively initiated some 
new things into Central's program of activities, for example, the Bond Drive and "The 
Girl's League." With the aid of Mrs. Jaffe, the Faculty Advisor, the "Executive 
Board" and the G.O. representatives made 1956 a most successful and eventful year.

Those girls who enjoy strenuous relaxation in 
school join the game club. The games that the 
girls indulge in, in our picturesquely piped base- 
ment range from shuffleboard to "nok-hockey." The 
activity of the girls is supervised by Leah Trenk, 
Athletic Manager and Florence Alter, Assistant 
Athletic Manager. 

Since we are at a loss for a gym, our basement 
is the next best thing. Aside from the pipes and 
low ceiling which eliminate the possibility of 
basketball and hinder greatly the game of badmin- 
ton, the room is very narrow and long and is 
lined with lockers which make it even more narrow 
and longer. The fact that there are no windows in 
the main room plus the aforementioned things just 
about rules out the possibility of doing practically 
anything. Somehow the girls manage to do many 
things and enjoy themselves while doing them. 

The game club provides physical relief from 
sitting in class all day long and mental relief from 
the strain of deep concentration which is needed 
in study. Generally speaking it gives the girls an 
opportunity to have fun.

One of the finest teams in Central is the Debating Team. Being in an Inter- 
Yeshiva league the members must always be in superb form because of their stiff 
competition. Some of the schools with which the team debates are: Brooklyn Tal- 
mudical Academy, Uptown Talmudical Academy, Ramaz, and Flatbush Yeshiva. 
Those girls who are veterans of the team have greatly improved their speech, vocabu- 
lary, general knowledge and poise. Hard work goes into a debate and the constant 
practice which gives the debate that final polish is very necessary. The Debating 
Team has been functioning since Central started and as the years go on the team 
improves tremendously. 

The many debates that the girls engage in during the course of the year are 
planned and made possible by Gloria Wallin the Debating Manager. 




Budding Journalists . . . 



/Tournaiidm L^tub 



This is one of the oldest continuous clubs in Central. Shortly after the founda- 
tion of our school, those girls interested in Journalism organized a club to gain 
practical experience for working on the school's newspaper, formally called "The 
Torch," but now known as "The Spark.'" Its purpose has always been to discuss the 
basic principles of the newspaper art and to place them in practice by putting out 
a school paper. The knowledge required in Journalism is extensive and varied, and 
actual writing requires much practice. Mr. Bassell, the faculty leader of the club, 
has taught the girls how to put the knowledge they have gained to work for them 
and he patiently advises them on all their endeavors. 

Because of the extensive writing the girls do they find that it is no more a 
hardship to write a composition for an English class for their fluency in English 
has been increased and they have developed their own style of writing. Their 
thoughts are now organized and clear, so if the Journalism club hasn't been of 
anv use to them it certainly has been a boon to the teachers! ! !

A "kibitzer" and Veda Eckstein 



Veda Eckstein, Head Librarian, with the aid of 
Rabbi Perlman, is responsible for the fine job that 
was done in the library. The acquisition of many 
new books led to great difficulties in catalogueing, 
placement, distribution etc. But Veda along with 
the really "tremendous" Library Squad managed to 
iron out the difficulties so smoothly and so fast 
that almost as soon as the books came in they were 
on the shelves and ready for distribution. Thanks 
to these girls also the library has become the quiet- 
est and cleanest room in the school although one 
of the busiest. 

This year Central acquired a New York State 
Regents Charter enabling the school to administer 
all state examinations in Central. Previously the 
students had to travel up to Yeshiva University in 
Washington Heights every January and June to take 
the examinations. Needless to say this was a tre- 
mendous bother to all concerned. The elimination 
of this annual "trek" is due directly to the books 
that were acquired for our ever-growing library.

The Choir furnishes quite a nice accompaniment to the buzzing of the other 
clubs during Club Period. The girls in the choir learn many unusual songs with 
interesting harmonies and they get a chance to display their talents at all the school 
functions. They have also performed many times at P.T.A. affairs. This year the 
Choir was under the guidance of Marcia Plotzker. The choir's repetoire of songs 
includes songs in Hebrew. English and \iddish and it is constantly being enlarged. 
None of the choir members has ever taken singing lessons although many are very 
gifted. 

Our choir is a welcome sight at any affair whether they entertain during the 
intermission or whether or not they are the featured performers they always seem 
to "hit the spot." The melodies that are sung are usually simple and ''hummable." 
There always is a song in which the audience participates. From the point of view 
of both those who hear and those who are heard, the Choir is one of the most 
'"enjoyable" clubs in Central.

Those girls who achieve a certain scholastic standing and who are of fine 
character are privileged to be eligible for Central's honor society, Arista. Not 
all who are eligible are accepted. Acceptance into Arista is a very great achieve- 
ment in itself and to become president is an even greater one. This year that position 
was held by Sylvia Saidlower and her Vice Head was Esther Lea Cohen. Along 
with Mr. Lilker the girls worked out a program of activity for Arista members for 
the year. One of the activities that Arista is responsible for is the Tutoring Agency 
in Central. This is a very beneficial organization for both those girls who tutor and 
those who are tutored. Each learns something from the other. 

As usual Arista had its annual theatre party, the play being "Witness for the 
Prosecution" it was well attended and all the girls enjoyed it tremendously. 

A new program for admittance was initiated by Sylvia Saidlower this year, along 
with the faculty. This program differs from the old in the respect that Arista chooses 
the girls whom it thinks are worthy and only they can apply and be admitted after 
careful scrutinization. Formerly almost anyone who had the scholastic average was 
eligible to apply. Under the new system only those students who are deemed 
eligible by their fellow students are permitted to join. This is only one fine achieve- 
ment that Arista has accomplished this semester and next year as every year improve- 
ments will be made.

Because of lack of funds, this year "The Spark"

It has been said that repetition is the mother of learning. This year the 
Dramatics Club has tried to instill in the girls the medium of self-expression, which 
was achieved through a continual repetition of monologues plus the reading of many 
plays. The Dramatics Club performed a comedy entitled "Into the Frying Pan." It 
was acted out with such delicacy and realism that the audience was greatly im- 
pressed. The second major undertaking was the play, "The Smallest Ship," which 
pertained to Independence Day and showed the more serious side of life. Sherry 
Reisman was both an amicable and capable leader and the girls of the club are 
looking forward to another successful year of dramatic presentation.

Central's Office Squad is both very large and very busy. Not 
only do the girls work for the administration of the school, but also 
monopolize the switchboard and knit for the secretary. These are 
done in addition to their regular tasks of annoying the principal, 
buying pastrami sandwiches for the secretary and breaking type- 
writers. Very seriously the girls help by bringing the attendance 
sheets around, taking care of the roll books, working the switch- 
board, running errands, addressing envelopes, mimeographing papers 
and many other small tasks which free the secretary so that she is 
able to do more important things. The one and only time that the 
Office Squad can be found idle is when final exams are being 
mimeographed then no student is permitted to enter the office. The 
girls, all of whom are volunteers and work in the office in their 
spare time, have gained valuable experience in office procedure 
which may be very valuable to them in the future. The Squad was 
headed this year by Marilyn Singer.

The Service Squad for the year 1955-56 did a fine job and 
our thanks to them. They did their best to uphold the Squad's 
principles of a pleasant, clean, quiet school for more pleasant 
learning. Although they weren't perfect the girls have shown vast 
improvements and we hope that the service Squads in the years to 
come will follow their example. The Head of the Service Squad, 
Rivka Teitz, instituted many new things and did much to enforce the 
old rules. As a result of a new system of punishment to be used 
in the case of a girl not doing her job properly, the members of the 
Squad functioned more efficiently thereby causing the school to do 
so also. Some of the problems that have been alleviated this year 
are: the congestion on the center staircase in between periods and 
the sloppiness of the lunchroom after lunch time. The first has been 
solved by an "UP" and "DOWN" staircase and the second by the 
"hawk eyes" of the Service Squad members on duty in the lunch- 
room. As a result of the fine job the Service Squad has done, the 
rules and regulations of the school are strictly adhered to by its 
students.

For half an hour every Monday the girls in the Yarmulka Making Club have

novices who didn't know how to crochet when they first joined the club quickly 
became skilled at this delicate art. Helen Berger in the capacity of "Chief Yarmulka 
Maker" serves to instruct the girls and help them out of any difficulties that they 
may "weave" themselves into. 

The members this year were: Malki Aboff. Dvora Brand, Debby Chill, Judy

The Sewing Club was instituted for the first time this year and has proved to 
be quite successful. Its many members have alone, with help or under complete 
supervision, produced some very beautiful work. One does not have to be skilled 
in the art of sewing to join the club because instruction is given to beginners as 
well as to the girls advanced in sewing. With the good start the club has had it is not 
doubtful that its success will continue through the years. The success is due in part 
to the efforts of its two leaders, Dorothy Beer and Charlotte Warshaviak able 
seamstresses themselves. The club has grown to be one of the most popular because 
many of the girls in Central enjoy working with their hands. Much interest is taken 
in working with ceramics for this reason. 

Even if a girl feels that she will never be able to sew anything for herself, 
their are many other valuable things to be learned in this club such as, the advan- 
tages and disadvantages of various types of material, and the best way to sew a 
zipper into an article of clothing. All in all it's a very informative and enjoyable 
way to spend a club period.

Basketball has become one of the chief extra curricular activities in Central. 
This year the basketball team under the able coaching of Debby Riback (a former 
Centralite) and Athletic Managers, Leah Trenk, and Florence Alter, were able to 
finish the season with a fairly good record. They were able to defeat Ramaz High 
School and many public schools despite the fact that they only had practice once 
a week for two hours. Just about the only "school spirit" in Central centers around 
the basketball team, and many times it was the spirit and enthusiasm of the girls 
who came down to the games and cheered the team that led them on to victory. 
Barbara Berger, Debby Birnbaum, Rachel Bodner, Judy Gold, Judie Messer, Rivka 
Teitz, Leah Trenk, Harriet Wagh, Linda Weinstein and Harriet Zellinger were the 
very able "forwards" this year. The guards this year were headed very ably by 
Florence Alter. They were: Barbara Chamedes, Renee Citron, Rosa Gluck, Esther 
Lipshitz, Roberta Orenstein, Shulamith Stein and last but not least, Blumi Wolf. 

Any dormant enthusiasm onlookers may have at the games are certainly 
awakened by the very active cheering squad. The girls this year taught and guided 
by Judie Gold, a very capable member of the basketball team herself, succeeded in 
arousing the girls so much that often they felt like getting up on the court and 
cheering themselves. Each girl on the squad has mastered the twists and turns of the 
most difficult cheers and is fully competent to compete with professional cheer- 
leaders. The girls are a picture of rhythm and grace and work in complete coordina- 
tion with one another. They make a very pretty picture too.

The Co-op store is really a boon to Central 
students always on the prowl for a bargain. In a 
little dark corner on the third floor everything 
from erasers to book covers is sold at cost price. 
This year the "store" functioned efficiently under 
the watchful eye of Hether Stitz and Helen Stein. 
These two girls had their hands full between order- 
ing the supplies and all the girls that were clamer-

great achievement.

The Chanuka affair is an event which has oc- 
cured annually in Central for many years. Much 
labor and effort goes into the affair and it always 
reflects the gaiety and joy of the holiday. Often 
during the course of the evening the program goes 
with easy grace from the sublime to the ridiculous. 
An example of the ridiculous would be the one act 
play put on this year by the girls, "Into the Frying 
Pan," which was the most enjoyable piece of fool- 
ishness ever witnessed in the school. An example 
of the sublime would be the group singing in 
which the girls participated after the program. This 
year's affair was the most successful yet and the 

girls are waiting with eager anticipation for next 
year's affair.

The Purim Carnival is always a tremendous 
success and this year's was no exception. Each 
class originates a booth and operates it. This year 
one of the most popular booths was the Fortune 
Telling booth run by one of the Senior classes. 
It seems that the line to see "Madame Zehorrible"' 
was forming around the corner. Naturally, the 
food table was doing a tremendous amount of busi- 
ness! The building was so crowded that some 
people had to be turned away. Everyone got into 
the spirit of Purim and if they couldn't get drunk 
on wine they almost did on Pepsi-Cola! The best 
way to show the success of an affair is in dollars 
and cents and two hundred dollars clear profit is 
an "awful" lot of success!!!

A little bit of exercise never hurt anyone but too 
much results in "Charley Horse" and that was what 
most of Central's students were suffering from the 
day after the "Lag B'Omer outing. The outing was 
held in Alley Pond State Park in Queens . . . 
together with TA. ! This was a thrill for absolutely 
none. Our brother school was located on the oppo- 
site side of the park, and Alley Pond Park is to 
say the very least, very large. The girls engaged 
in a variety of activities, among them: softball, 
handball, badminton, tennis, volleyball and last but 
not least eating. The last was one of the most en- 
joyed and was most indulged in. Games were or- 
ganized by Leah Trenk and Florence Alter, be- 
tween classes. Thanks also to the hearty bus drivers 
who managed to get us there despite our constant 
and relentless "singing." All in all the weather was 
pleasant, the food good (the ants seemed to enjoy 
it), the activity strenuous, the sunburn painful and 
"Lag B'Omer" fun.

The Mother-Daughter Luncheon is one of the im- 
portant functions of the year and has always been 
well attended. The proceeds go to the Yeshiva to 
be used where needed most. This year they were 
used for our ever-expanding library. 

The entertainment portion of the program is 
always planned and presented by the students. A 
one act play called, "Angel Child," was presented 
this year. It was directed by Roberta Orenstein and 
proved to be quite a success. The play starred, 
Judie Messer, Goldie Nagel, Marcia Plotzker, 
Sherry Reisman and Rivka Teitz. 

A highlight of the affair was a presentation made 
to Mrs. Rosalyn Pomerantz on behalf of the 
Parent-Teachers Association of Central, for her un- 
tiring work for the School. A rousing round of 
applause was given her as soon as she received 
the gift. 

Although the affair wasn't without fault it was 
a great improvement over last year's and was en- 
joyed tremendously by both mothers and daughters.

"SING" 1956 
The "Sing" is an event to which we all look forward with eager anticipation. 
Once a year on "Senior Day" we all get a chance to air our pent up feelings about 
the teachers and various other facets of school life. Of course this is all done good 
naturedly in song. The songs concern anything from the rats in the basement to 
Mr. Lilker's marriage. 

Two songs are presented from each term with the notable exception of the 
Seniors who present three, the third being an Alma Mater. The presentations are 
judged by three "judges," who were this year, Hadassa Lichtenstein, Mrs. Feuer and 
Mr. Kallner. The highest possible score that can be achieved is one hundred, the 
points being divided as follows: twenty-five (25) for the March, fifty (50) for the 
Comic Song, fifteen (15) for Special Effects (scenery, costumes, etc.) and ten (10) 
points for decorum. 

Each term chooses a theme and builds its "Sing" around it. This year the Fresh- 
men decided that Central is "Out of This World," the Sophies were eagerly awaiting 
"Summertime," the Juniors came to the conclusion that C.Y.H.S. is no "Toyland' 
and the Seniors honored everyone with a "Command Performance." 

The songs couldn't have been better, the sets couldn't have been more original, 
the costumes couldn't have been cuter BUT ... the Seniors won with a high score 
of ninety-three and the Sophomores placed Second with a score of ninety-two. It

Only partly from his look. 

We saw a little trickle 

And laughed galore 

It just kept comin' 

Right through the door — 

And nothin' in our whole '"Historiah" 

Ever gave us so much glee 

As when the bathroom flooded Jewish History. 

TUNE— Under Paris Skies 

On Rosh Chodesh morn 

He comes filled with scorn 

That's our Mr. Steif. . . . 

Hallel's a whim 

Conceived against him 

As a plot against his life. . . . 

Jewish History 

Our time is not free to devote to thee 

The final will be on four years you see, 

But you're still a mystery. . . . 

This revenge fills Steif with glee. 

TUNE— You Made Me Love You 

She made him marry 

He didn"t want to do it (2) 

He wished to tarry 

And every maiden knew it 

They never thought he'd do it. 

He made them happy sometimes, 

He made them sad 

And there were times when 

He could be so bad. . . . 

TUNE— What Ever Lola Wants 

Whatever Lilker wants 

Peshi's got 

Because it's hard to please a diplomat 

She's an exception to the rule 

It was worthwhile to go to school 

Got him. . . . 



TUNE— Can Can 
One thing we don't understand 
Is when to Bob we raise our hand 
Our parents named us all 
But Bassell prefers to call us: 

SPOKEN: Yellow — blouse, idiot, foggy, glasses, 
frisky and . . . "you know, you're stupid!" . . . 
We'll never pass the regents 'cause 
We can't learn English but we learn 
Swahili. Latin. French and Spanish 
We'll listen to the tales he'll tell 
Then we'll all land up in ... . 
Summer School 

ZW£-Hatikvah 

Charlie had a high school once 

That was his chief concern 

Then Maxie came and gave the dough 

Now all w ; e hear is Stern. . . . 

Brooklyn. Hunter, Barnard too 

It really is absurd 

For Stern's is the only one 

That started on a bird . . . 



TUNE— Here Comes the Bride 

Here comes our man 

Big and strong 

Whatever we do 

It's always wrong . . . 

We never comb our hair 

We nevir wash our face 

And when the bell rings 

We're not in our place 

We can't seem to please him 

Or even appease him 

But in our own manner 

We love Ted Kallner 

We wish he would do 

One thing for us soon, 

We wish that he'd learn 

To march to this tune. 

TUNE—l Get Ideas 

How can we get married 

Dr. Jofen now you've left us 

We're getting looser 

Without your "Mooser" 

How can we marry 

Without Jofen to protect us 

Shcopp taught "halacha" 

'stead of "Taharas Hamispocho" 

And when we're married 

And the time is drawing closer 

We'll get ideas, the wrong ideas 

Jofen, hurry back and teach us 

All the hooey 

Tell us what it takes to make 

Jewish whoopie. . . . 

How can we marry, Dr. Jofen 

Now you've left us 

. . . We'll do everything wrong 

. . . We'll do everything wrong.

nW£— Rambam Mambo 
In the morning it's Dr. Linick 
Then Hoffman hocks us a kopp 
Towards evening when we're dead tired 
Here comes "Mooser" with Rebitzen Shcopp 
And her "P'sukey D'Zimro . . . Oy Vey (2) 

TUNE — When Irish Eyes are Smiling 

Oh, Hadassah is a wonder 

She's great from limb to limb 

She leaves college Phi Beta Kappa 

And she still can't dive or swim . . . 

Her father is of great fame 

Dr. Licty is her dad 

His ties shine up his shoes 

And he sighs when we are bad . . . 

TUNE— I Hear Ya Knockin' 

There's termites in the "C" class 

Knockin' at our wall 

They banged so hard we surely thought 

The wall would fall 

We hear you knockin', 

But we can't come in . . . 

Lichty says stop cloppin', 

Chutzpa is a sin . . . 

Another time the door was locked by accident, 

He said, "Biti, I know this surely wasn't meant" . 

We heard him knockin', but he couldn't come in . 

TUNE— Figaro 

To Dr. Lewin, Dr. Lewin 

Mr. Hoffman runs all day 

Telling him that the Senior classes 

. . . Just won't obey 

Doctor, please give me an "aytse" 

First they wanted half the test 

But I also gave them all the rest 

But Dr. Lewin they have such gall 

They didn't take the test at all . . . 

TUNE — Standing on the Corner 

Standing at the blackboard 

Watching all. the girls erase 

He will always catch you 

If you're gazing into space . . . 

Epstein's a member of the teaching occupation 

Ruler in hand, he's in command 

But isn't it better than just solving an equation 

Oh, standing at the blackboard 

Watching all the girls (3) erase . . . 

TUNE— Grandfather Clock 

The sound of her shoes 

In the halls brings us news 

Mrs. Tessell ain't absent today . . . 

The shoes off her feet 

And her figure that's neat 

Mrs. Tessell ain't absent today . . . 

Teaching typing and sten, 

Telling how to act with men 

She's got zing, with her swing and her sway . . 

But she'll stop short 

Never to swing again 

When Charlie looks her way . . . 



TUNE— "Chosen Calla Mazel Tov" 

We'd like to sing a song for Berenholtz 

The one and only Rabbi Berenholtz 

We like your dimples and your charming smile 

Oh, Rebbi dear for you we'd walk a mile . . . 

Oh, when you left us all the girls did bawl 

'cause with Asya we had no fun at all 

But now you're back and so we all rejoice 

We're lulled to sleep again by your voice . . . 

TUNE— Honey Babe 

Herring bone shirts and checkered ties together, 

together . . . 
Bright plaid suit and vest that's striped 
Make the outfit better 
Argyle socks give the finishing touches 
Shoes that always look like galoshes 
Presenting our dear Mr. Horn . . . 
If you look 
Inside his desk 

You'll find nailfiles, combs and all the rest 
With two little girls that look like toys 
He decided it was time to switch to boys, 
Presenting our dear Mr. Horn . . . 

TUNE— I Get Ideas 

Please Rabbi Perlman 

Keep your "tzitzes" in your trousers 

It isn't "tznius" 

We get ideas . . . 

We didn't mind bare arms and lifted desks and 
candles 

But "arba kanfos" lead to blushes and to scan- 
dies . . . 

TUNE— Titwillow 

We sit in a bunch 

As the bell ends our lunch 

Who will be the first one to rise 

We don't start to go 

'cause if we do, we know 

Rosenmunde will faint of surprise 

We finally start to begin to depart 

And we bid fond farewell 

Ages after the bell 

And each girl gets her book 

Braving Rosenmunde's look 

And tardily thinks of excuses 

Each girl straggles in and then 

Sweetly asks him: 

"Bivakasha, hamutar li latzes?" 

The period's done 

Before learning's begun 

Against time we've won our race . . . 

TUNE— Into the Air 

Into the air Mr. Annenberg 

Into the air, up in the sky 

Into the air Mr. Annenberg, 

Your space shoes look ready to fly.

TUNE— Hernando's Hideaway 

We know a dark decrepid room 

A room that's never seen a broom 

The walls are sure to topple soon 

It's called The G.O. Room and Elchanette 

It's got a purpose quite unique 

From teacher's refuge here we seek 

So "loshen harah" we may speak 

The infamous G.O. Room and Elchanette 

TUNE— Everything's Up-to-Date in Kansas City 

Going steady is a Senior pastime 

Most of us have had a few boy pals 

But now our eyes are tearing 

Because we always see rings 

Upon the hands of two of our own gals 

Temmi Speiser, Judy Gold how could you 

Make us feel like 65 old maids 

You could swear that we were jealous 

From our heads until our heels 

But look at their happy faces 

And you'll know just how we feel 

We wish the best of everything 

To them with lots of zeal 

Let's wish them both a hearty Mazel Tov (2) 

TUNE— Kiss Me Another 

The Latin students were caught 

In a web of masculine charm 

When Godin came in and taught 

Of Latin words and forms 

Oh, spell me another 

Decline me another 

Conjugate another verb . . . 

Tell me more of Caeser's battles 

Tell me another proverb . . . 

His ties are Italian silk 

His pipe's aroma is grand 

With his dry humor and wit 

He has us all in the palm of his hand 

Oh. spell me another . . . etc. 

TUNE— Hot Diggitty 

Test diggitty, quiz diggitty 

Boom what you do to me 

I'm so figgitty, from your history 

Test diggitty, quiz diggitty, 

Mrs. Jaffee I'm lost 

TUNE— Louise 

Every little breeze seems to whisper, "Take ease", 

You're graduatin', so look at the trees 

Every bit of sun and sky seems to give us, 

Senioritis, Seniorities. 

Sittin' at the window 

Watchin' the birds Tryin' to recall vocabulary

How can they blame us, for gettin' that famous 
Senioritis, Senioritis. 

TUNE— "Betsays Yisroel" 

We've presented a Command Performance 

For our Alma Mater, Central High 

We sang in a symphony of voices 

Of our feelings low and high . . . 

Some songs were sad and some were in jest 

But all in all — Central is best 

Of thee we sing Central High (2)

In praise, we raise our voices true 

Central, we sing to you 

We will always strive 

To keep your spirit alive 

The white and the blue . . . 

Heads held high 

We march, the Senior Class 

Our honor none can defy 

We stand erect to see your flag 

As it passes by . . . 

Hear us sing today 

Marching on our way 

Marching on our way 

To win the fray . . . 

In praise we raise our voices true 

Central, we sing to you 

We will always strive to keep your spirit alive 

The white and the blue . . . 



ALMA MATER 

TUNE— SERENADE 

On the eternal stage of our life 

Central — you are the star 

All you words in memories pressed 

Are the best by far. 

Knowledge taught with Jewish spirit 

Gave us Torah too 

Our dear white and blue 

Ever loving, ever faithful 

Will we remain to you 

Alma Mater true . . . 

And when we leave 

Though happy we will grieve 

For far as we may fly 

Our home is here at Central High 

Through your halls and through your rooms, 

Our voices ring out strong 

You have taught us how to use for good the 

strength of the young 
Ever faithful, ever loving 
Will we remain to you 
Alma Mater true . . . 

And when we leave, though happy we will grieve 
For far as we may fly, our home is here at Central 

High.

This is the year that we still believe that Central is the big school across the 
street. This is the year of swimming pools and elevators, "Mumbo Jumbo" and 
Senior Worship. 

We're eggs — Grade A, B, and C (that's a yolk, son!). We're offered French 
or Spanish . . . WHAT? no Swahili? Central's classes are very inspiring; they 
keep us on the go. Messer's the first to go . . . sound asleep, in Dr. Lewin's class 
no less! Medical Examinations come with little glass bottles. Be normal, turn blue! 

Winter comes, can snowball fights be far behind? Charlie comes to rescue us 
from the big bad Erasmus boys, but he proves to be an even better target than we. 
The boys, having chilled us with snowballs, proceed to warm us with firecrackers 
through the second floor window. Charlie learns his lesson and stays in his office 
snug as a bug without a rug. . . . Central never was one to flaunt its wealth!!! 

The Fuchs twins pull a switch in French. Rushie wasn't Shushie, wushie??? 
Dr. Linick commends Mrs. Nager on her three lovely daughters. 

The "Roaring Twenties" return and "Aunt Lulu's" dress ushers them in. 
Kallner crawls as a stocking falls . . . there's a little bit o' devil in us all ! 

Two new cheers develop: "Yay Solevatchick" in class, and on buses, "Yay 
Erasmus"!!! English stops as Veda learns the "Hula-Hop." Then there was the 
time that Grossman scratched a record, and a small voice peeped, "Gezundeheit"! ! ! 

The Reign of Terror!! Discipline, what's that??? Simanowitz receives the 
supreme punishment: She cannot write a punishment report for not attending 
Punishment classes! ! ! What more can Iris do??? ... 

Leave it to Iris! ! ! 

P.T. teaches us that it's dangerous to move a victim . . . when Barbara Gold 
falls Alter refuses to let her get up! The Boro Park bus breaks down . . . that's 
the trouble with Harry! The Central boiler breaks down . . . that's the trouble with 
Charlie! Lack of steam causes complaints, but we open all the windows, and no one 
minds. That's the trouble with the teachers, they don"t mind! We douse the room 
with cheap perfume . . . boy, that class really smells!!! The Nager twins sneeze 
. . . without a storm warning??? (You think that's bad, you should hear their 
father!!!) 

Sarah Drazin leaves for Israel. We start looking for someone else who does 
"Shaalonim." Israel's answer to Sarah Drazin AND Albert Einstein: Ophra Beit- 
Arie (that Bnei Akiva gets stronger every day!!!) She's great, and who's left when 
Ophra leaves? Tzivia anyone? Hoffman takes advantage of our plight. We" re still too 
innocent to complain to Lewin. Lewin's nervous enough, anyway. He bangs away 
on his desk and then asks "Mi dofake al hashulchan? ??" Leah unnerves him com- 
pletely by blowing her nose. 

How much is that red dress in the window? 

We learn several new facts as we embark upon our high school education: 

1. Spring Fever is Sing Fever. 

2. In Spanish, "U" and "I" are weak, all the rest are strong! 

3. It's a good thing the Maccabees didn't have to come to us for swords! 

4. When the bathroom is at High Tide we have our swimming pool ! ! ! 

5. Bnei Akiva is stronger than the U.S. Army. 

6. A week's studying isn't necessary.

This is the year Regents arrive. This is the year the school becomes a prison, 
and we love it. (The doorknob fell off! ) This is the year of Revelation. Teachers are 
our natural enemies and we've just begun to fight. Hoffman, Weinstein and Horn 
prepare for the battle! Economic Geography is fun ... at least that's what Mrs. 
Jaffe says, This is the year that we have three mid-terms-a-day all year long. The 
class motto becomes, "Cooperation." 

Three regents seem insurmountable but our spirits are light and gay. As our 
work increases so does our merriment. Florence Alter is our barefoot lass in 
Geometry ... the door is always kept open. Naomi Nager is convinced that, "There 
are five days in my mother," is the Spanish answer to how many days there are in a 
year. In Bio. our mistakes amuse Mr. Kallner . . . well, as long as we're failing 
humorously! Rachel, Homo Sapiens don't lay eggs!!! Plasmolisis isn't the function 
of the Plasmodium??? "Cows give the most care to their young and they also 
supply the energy in a hamburger." ... We know who Orenstein's friends are. 
Chamedes writes that rabies are carried by humans and Kallner writes back, "Who 
bit you???" Who's "La-la Ubangi Rhodospirillum Rubrum???" 

But we don't rely solely on Regents to provide amusement. Our witticisms 
brighten classes, too. An entire row goes crazy trying to put together a square in 
Hebrew, Perlman retaliates by marking down circles. Well, we're learning Geometry. 
We're the only class in the school that keeps a salt shaker filled with ink. There's a 
constant "zimzoom" in Jewish History; could there be a music class nearby? Idelle 
buys the "giant economy" size tube of toothpaste and Beth asks awe stricken, "How 
many teeth do you have?" Rachel loves the French courses . . . "They're so vulgar!" 
Leah gets the German measles and we all start scratching ! 

Time for Sing rolls around. Rogers and Hammerstein is a theme??? Mr. Horn 
wears a plaid shirt, checkered pants and a herring bone tweed jacket! When the 
doorknob falls off Weinstein is locked out and the whole school rushes to our 
rescue! Mrs. Lebowitz takes us to Al Roon's. We swim while the old tenants crawl. 
Why is Resnikoff wearing a dog tag? Saidlower crunches a carrot during "Ivris" 
and Perlman throws Simanowitz out of class. In Bio. we make zygots out of beads 
and pipe cleaners. Simanowitz is afraid that when her children ask her where they 
came from she'll have to say, "Well, mommy took some pipe cleaners ..." They 
washed the windows — well glory be!!! We can finally see Snyder Avenue! Is Ricco- 
chet Romance" an Almamater??? We go into competition with Ringling Bros., 
Barnum and Bailey circus. They win! We pay reparations to Iris. Leave it to Iris! 

Having learned the fundamentals we hereby discard them: 

1. There is no earthly reason for more than five girls to do a "Shaalon" at all. 

2. It is absolutely unnecessary to start the Art Diary before June. 

3. Flickering shadows can best be portrayed by blackboard and candle a la 
Perlman) . 

4. "No Other Love" can be an Almamater. 

5. Regents are bearable. They're just tests that are marked fairly. 

6. An evening's study isn't necessary.

This is the year of radical change. There is no waiting on line for programs 
. . . numbers instead. "Did they get up to 695,83714 yet?" No two Juniors have 
the same program and no two consecutive classes are held in the same room. But as 
a consolation we become "Ladies of Leisure," for this is also the year of free 
periods. 

No class goes uninterrupted. Intermediate Algebra stops and Alper instructs 
Seigman on how to pull a chair out of the room. Mishna stops to get the sun out of 
someone's eyes. It burns. Who's burning? Berenholtz! Hebrew stops when Perlman 
brings the class olives. "Where do you spill the juice?" 

Frieda joins Connie. Rosner has no Math homework. Excuse: "I do five at a 
time. Isn't that all right?" They nail the chairs together. Our rows begin to resemble 
the "Rockettes." Youth and age are balanced at Central; the basement is painted 
nursery pink (how base can you get?), and Rabbi Adler grows a beard. 

Kallner won't allow shirttails to show in Chemistry. All he needs now are 
little steel balls. We have a Chanuka Chagiga. . . . It's fun but you can starve! 
We are enraged when Bassell is engaged, 'cause before word could be spread he 
fooled us and wed. 

We have a theatre party and see "The Rainmaker." The following day every 
Centralite thinks herself another Geraldine Page. . . . "Oh, Staaaaaaarbuck!" The 
thermometer hits zero but our hopes are in vain, school carries on as usual. (That's 
why we love Central . . . soooo courageous!) 

Shushan Purim, and the Juniors come to school in pajama tops wildly enthused. 
Friedman is only mildly amused! We get new lockers and we have to fill out cards 
telling with whom we wish to share our lockers. One girl hopefully says "Marlon 
Brando." We all follow her lead and become a little mad. We play choo-choo train 
in the lunchroom. Spring arrives and we're off to play tennis. We can't figure it out. 
Does Perlman want to see us in shorts or do we want to see Perlman in shorts? 
We go on a Lag B'Omer outing with TA. . . . goody, goody! ! ! 

Grandovsky gets the German measles and we all start scratching. Our Sing 
theme is "The World," which is all-inclusive if nothing else. Is "Laura Lee" an 
Almamater? No one seems to know but we win second place regardless. 

We have the Mother-Daughter Luncheon . . . lovely, but you can starve. 
"Trenco Sox" take us by storm. A second theatre party, "Comedy in Music," keeps 
laughing. Elections: Gottlieb and Orenstein head the G.O. Does Plotzker make 
the G.O.P. ??? We get keys and rings . . . nooo, we're not engaged! ! ! 

We suddenly become sentimental and realize several startling facts: 

1. The Seniors are really leaving us. 

2. We liked them all along. 

3. Naomi Roitman will never pop up again as a bearded old man in a Central 
play. 

4. HEY! ! ! . . . WE'RE the SENIORS now! ! ! 

5. Frieda has a little baby sister. (Little did we know at the time but her 
mother started a fad.) 

6. The Horror House can be a horror. 

7. Who studies???

This is the year of rebellion. We stage sit-down strikes in Chumash. We come 
out unwounded but WITH a few scabs. The G.O. Room's population expands while 
the classroom's contacts. (What goes on in the G.O. Room when the door's locked???) 
A "Shofate" a day keeps other subjects away. The entire class is dieting. We spend 
all our time in Dr. Lewin's office, face to face with the "Holy Trinity." We're there 
to talk about tests and they're there to talk about the "SEEDY side of college and 
the YUMMY side of life!") 

We're all "Big Sisters." . . . thrill, thrill ! ! ! Mr. Schur wants to give the Indian 
Summer back to the Indians. Perlman wouldn't like that; he'd call us "Chinese 
givers." (Would that be anything like an Indian-giver-backer?) 

Mr. Tarr joins the ranks of our illustrious faculty, temporarily, to try and 
make millionaires, rather, $l,400aires, out of us. While discussing a $64,000 winner 
he says, "She was very good, because I know more about boxing than she'll ever 
know, and I couldn't answer those questions!" 

Bassell mentions the war poem, "V-Mail," and Renee asks, "What sex is that?" 
"Foggy" Frieda has to do research on the word kangaroo, for talking in English. 
Our very same English teacher has great visions of himself as a male Louella 
Parsons . . . but at least "Confidential" can be sued! ! ! 

When will Mr. Hoffman learn to say, "Ask your mother," about those "Pesu- 
kim" that he wants us to know? In the meantime, Resnikoff has to explain the facts 
of life to Messer. "Veelondt" has the best time of all. 

Mr. Schur would appreciate that. When Chamedes inquires as to the difference 
between a stork and a crane, he answers, "Why, you know that a crane doesn't 
carry babies!" Another time while trying to emphasize the fact that bacteria aren't 
affected by cold he said, "Why, bacteria laugh at home freezers," but Simanowitz 
wryly added, "They laugh, but they shiver!" 

According to Rabbi Rosenmund, first comes "Babba Kamma," then "Babba 
Metzia," and last but not least, "Babba Kasha!" 

Lilker pulls the craziest antic of all . . . he gets MARRIED! Need we say more? 

We're growing up. One pebble on our road to maturity is Jewish (short Hallel) 
Ethics! Dr. Jofen is our experienced instructor. Nothing, but nothing, is left to the 
imagination!!! Grandovsky doesn't want to cause Jofen any trouble, so she leaves 
. . . ZOOOOM! 

Rosenmunde can't understand why two girls are missing when he counts us 
despite the fact that everyone answers the roll call. Kallner puts a triangle around 
a name on the attendance sheet and Nagel says, "As long as it isn't a heart!" 

Rozzie leaves for a baby, Dr. Jofen leaves for a baby, Mrs. Jaffe leaves for a 
baby, Kallner leaves for . . . IBM ! ! ! 

We leave Central "true" after having learned several astonishing facts: 



1. It isn't necessary to do . . . 

2. Ooooh yes it is! 

3. According to Bassell a "syble" is an onion. 

4. Y.U.H.S.F.G. ... what's that???
